m18x r2 how turn on laptop

1 post in this topic

Hello all.

First sorry for my english and my words (i don't know same words)

 

I have problem with my Alienware m18x r2. I cant turn him on with POWER button. I check with "ENDE" and it turn on. That means mobo is working.

Now I don't know what can be broke. I think about 4 options:

1. Button on that motherboard

2. motherboard when is that button

3. cable from motherboard to nest/impute/connector/join on main motherboard

4. nest/impute/connector/join on that main motherboard

 

Now my question is that someone know how to make short circuit/close pin on that nest. That why i will know what is broken step by step. It have 6 pins in that nest and I don't know which is for what.

I don't want to burn that nest/impute/connector/join

 

Thank you all for you help and answer

      I release here today my personal BIOS for the M18x R2. It is based upon svl7's unlocked A11, Swick's mods to A11, and I have changed back the boot images to default Alienware and Intel logos, as well as reverted the atheros LAN oprom back to the default version that does not take up extra boot time. All other modifications done by swick and svl7 remain intact. Copy files from zip to root of usb in a usb-dos environment, run flash.bat. Simple. Tested by me on two of my M18x R2 systems, works without issue. I take no responsibility if you brick your system, flash at your own risk. Only thing left to do is to somehow enable 2133 for sandy bridge CPU in M18x R2 motherboard.
       
      Remember, give thanks to svl7 and swick for their initial work on this. I release this freely to the public, nobody should pay for this.
